Fiction. Young Adult Novel. In the third volume of the SUBMARINE OUTLAW Series, Alfred sets off in his submarine up the dark and wilful St. Lawrence River. With Hollie and Seaweed, his dog and seagull crew, Alfred follows the route of Jacques Cartier, nearly five hundred years before them, as they sail down the Strait of Belle Isle into the largest river mouth in the world. But the St. Lawrence is a treacherous river, concealing many dangers beneath its surface, not least of all the cursed and ghostly Empress of Ireland, a sunken ocean liner that has claimed the lives of over a thousand people and that reaches up to entangle the sub as they pass.

Philip Roy was born and raised in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and now lives in Durham, Ontario, with his wife, three children and a cat. Whenever possible, he visits the places he writes about in the "Submarine Outlaw" series—Japan in the case of STEALTH OF THE NINJA. The only thing better than traveling, he contends, is writing about it and visiting schools to share his stories and research with young readers. Author City: DURHAM, ON CAN
